Backup4all: FAQ - General Backup Questions
sponsored by Softland SRL

Backup4all generates standard zip formats. This format is compatible with any zip utility available on the market. For zip files greater than 2 Gbytes, Backup4all uses zip64 technology (which allows unlimited zip file size). Zip compatibility means that your data is not at the mercy of Backup4all itself; you can access it with any zip-compatible utility.

Backup4all does not set the Archive flag. Backup4all uses its own catalog file (.bkc) to keep track of the new and changed files. This has the advantage of a faster backup run because the Archive flag does not need to be set. Another advantage is that you can run Backup4all together with other backup applications because they do not interfere with each other.
